Sticker Mania

When I was a kid, sticker collecting was really big. I would hoard my stickers like they were pirate treasure. My favorites were a brand called "Mrs. Grossman's" because they had these great simple designs and bright colors. Little did I know that I would one day live in the same town where Mrs. Grossman's factory is located. Today was the annual Mrs. Grossman's factory sale. I was there when the doors opened. Now, I am stocked up on stickers and sticker accessories. It was so much fun! They have a terrific factory tour and store as well. Now, I can go straight to the source when I want cool stickers. Lucky me!!! If you are in the Bay Area, I highly recommend the factory tour.

Lazy Scrapbooker

Well, I'm still trying to figure out a gift for my hubby for our upcoming anniversary. Love the idea of a mini-quilt but I still don't know how to quilt nor do I have sewing machine. (Still!)

I am also starting on baby's scrapbook. The annoucements should arrive tomorrow and I want to make the annoucement the first page. I have also decided to try out How Fast They Grow. It's kind of expensive but the pages look nice. It's the quick and dirty way to scrapbook. Or for those people like me who seem to have no time since they are constantly breastfeeding! I'll let you know how the pages turn out!

Hi Everybody!

well, the last month has been full of all of the joys and challenges that comes with new parenthood. The baby is absolutely wonderful. The struggles with breastfeeding and lack of sleep....not so much. But we're working on it! Everyone tells me things will get better around three months. Just in time for me to go back to work. Sigh.

ANYWAY...I need to pick your brains. My second anniversary is July 3 and the traditional gift for that is cotton. I need ideas of something to do for my husband. I thought about a robe but he has enough robes he already doesn't use. Does anyone have a creative idea for cotton? I don't mind making something.

Ideas please!!!!
